This study describes how to establish a capillary viscometer (microviscometer) that uses an inline microflowmeter that can accurately measure whole blood effective viscosity in tubes of arteriolar diameter at physiologically nominal flow rates with all benefits of digital media. The total measurement time is 4 minutes. The data can be digitally handled. Currently this system is assembled at the Department of Anatomy, Istanbul Medical School, University of Istanbul. The system diagnoses elevated viscosity as a routine procedure providing valuable criteria for many clinical manifestations.
